Honoring our Veterans in Alpine has become a great celebration. This year, the Alpine Kiwanis sponsored a Memorial Day picnic welcoming all in Alpine to come and enjoy a classic barbequed picnic lunch prepared by volunteers. Hundreds showed up at the Alpine Community Park to commemorate all who served in the United States Armed Forces. Many showed up wearing their Red, White, & Blue, to enjoy a sunny day filled with ardent verve.

Good news, Alpine residents: The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved a preliminary county budget that includes nearly $10 million for a new library in the community. The project has been on the community’s wish list -- and mine -- for a long time. If the budget gets the final okay next month, construction could begin on Arnold Way, next to the Alpine Community Center, by mid-2014. Below are conceptual renderings of the 13,500-square-foot building. I’m proud of what communities and the county have done over the years to improve libraries across East County!
